Local vets raise money for injured soldiers

NORWICH This weekend, motorcycle riders will have the chance to take a scenic, hundred-mile ride through Chenango County, and its all for a good cause.

Saturday, rain or shine, the American Legion Riders from the Lt. Warren Eaton Post in Norwich will host their fourth annual Poker Run. Proceeds from the charity event will be donated to the Landstuhl Hospital Care Project, which supports American soldiers injured in combat overseas.

There they receive treatment and rehabilitation for their injuries before returning home. Often their injuries are severe and their stays at the hospital lengthy.
